“Final K-1 for a family member's estate. It notes 3500 under code A (excess deductions) under line 11 and 66,000 under code B (short-term capital loss carryover) under line 11. I was told that the taxes would be paid by the estate on the money I received from the estate. This didn't sound right so i'm curious what to expect come tax time.”---> Estates and trusts which file Form 1041 Income Tax Return for Estates and Trusts, are required to send Schedule K-1 to beneficiaries to report distributions of income during the year; A 1041 form is an income tax reporting form that an estate files. The IRS requires the estate manager to file this form each year. The income passes through directly to the beneficiaries so the estate does NOT pay any taxes itself( Most estates -- more than 99% -- don't. The federal government imposes estate tax at a person's death only if the taxable estate is worth more than $5 million. , but the trust or estate still has to file an income tax return).The various types of income from these entities are to be reported on your individual income tax return on 1040 on specific lines and in specific schedules.You need to report your share of investment as shown on the Schedule K-1 on your individual tax return; you should report Short term capital loss carryuover on Line 11( under Code B) of Schedule K-1 on 1040 Sch D line 16 report the smaller ofThe loss on line 16 or ($3,000), or if married filing separately, ($1,500) on Form 1040, line 13. Also the amount $3,500 on Sch K-1 of 1041 line 11 with code A needs to be reported on Sch A of 1040 line 23 , Other expenses—investment, safe deposit box, etc. List type and amount; if you do not itemize deductions on Sch A , then you can’t deduct it from your AGI. Excess deductions on termination occur only during the last tax year of the estate when the total deductions (excluding the charitable deduction and exemption) are greater than the gross income during that tax year. If there is an estate tax deduction, include it in the taxes deduction on Schedule A of Form 1040
